You can substitute white rice with brown rice while making delicious pulaos and biryanis, to benefit from its added nutrient and fibre content. Here is how you can cook brown rice on an open flame. While pressure cooking is a bit faster, cooking on an open flame gives you greater control over the texture and consistency – you can stop just when it is perfectly done. However, remember to soak the rice for two hours to speed up cooking.

I always faced difficulty in cooking brown rice. With this recipe i have mastered the art of cooking it. I tried the pressure cooker method mentioned in the video also and that turns out to be wonderful too.

I love eating health food and try and always substitute white rice with brown rice. Brown rice is low on the glycemic index and breaks down slower into your blood stream.
